Chinese rappers warn S. Korea on US missile defence system

North Korean propaganda must be considered with wariness — Pyongyang has threatened for decades to reduce Seoul to a "sea of fire", for instance — but Monday's claim, if confirmed, would mark another big advance toward the North's goal of fielding a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the USA mainland.

Moon said their dispatch marks the start of "normalization" in Korea's diplomatic activities after months where little could be done as ex-President Park Geun-hye battled impeachment. Jang Wook, a spokesman for the South Korean Navy, told reporters, adding the end date has not yet been set.

There's been growing speculation that the U.S. might use another successful test by North Korea as a pretext to attack, which is likely why this most recent test was of something too short range to pose a practical threat to the United States, hoping it would improve their retaliatory capabilities without sparking an outright attack.

North Korea's top envoy to China, Ji Jae-Ryong, on May 15 called on South Korea's new government to respect and fully implement inter-Korean agreements on reconciliation and cooperation.

According to the conservatives' polls , Rouhani and Ghalibaf would draw an equal number of votes in the coming elections. No details were given about the other violations, though Mohseni Ejei said they were being pursued in the courts.

North Korea has made no secret of the fact that it is working to develop a nuclear-tipped missile capable of striking the US mainland and has ignored calls to halt its nuclear and missile programmes, even from China, its lone major ally.

"It is actually North Korea trying to intimidate the global community", Haley said, "and Russian Federation itself should be concerned because that ballistic missile test was a signal to South Korea for their new elections, it was a signal to Russian Federation in how close it got, it was a signal to Japan being in the region, and it was a signal to us".

The Reagan successfully completed sea trials last week and embarked on its "regularly scheduled patrol" along with accompanying warships, according to the Stars & Stripes.

A date and other specifics of the summit are still to be decided, Yoon said.

EEUU dispuesto a hablar con Pyongyang si detiene pruebas balísticas y nucleares
De acuerdo a lo trascendido, el cohete se precipitó sobre el mar de Japón, a unos 500 kilómetros de la costa rusa. El ensayo constituye una violación de las resoluciones del Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU.

State media paraphrased North Korea's leader as saying that "the most flawless weapon systems in the world will never become the eternal exclusive property of the USA", warning that "the US should not. disregard or misjudge the reality that its mainland and Pacific operation region are in (North Korea's) sighting range for strike".

As a matter of fact, it's no secret that Beijing and Pyongyang have been drifting apart ever since Kim Jong-un took power in North Korea in December 2011.

President Donald Trump's administration has called North Korean ballistic and nuclear efforts unacceptable, but it has swung between threats of military action and offers to talk as it formulates a policy. "Having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the president, because he's absolutely not going to do it", she told ABC.

Some analysts believe the missile, if proven in further tests, could possibly reach Alaska and Hawaii. Experts assess that, had the missile been flown at a normal trajectory, it could have reached 2,800 miles. This is the tenth North Korean missile launch this year.
